    Default Rebuilding BURHOE "White" Speakers

    Winslow Burhoe / Burhoe Acoustics "White" model

    These came to me almost trashed and the cabinets had very deep scratches, and nneding surrounds..
    They guy I bought them from was actually was listening to them without the surrounds
    "Kinda Tinny sounding " he said

    With lots of love & attention, I had the woofs repaired, and did a huge sanding & refinishing job on the cabinets.
    I've been using "General Finish" Gel stain, and found out they make a clearcoat, so I'll add that to my toolkit as well.

    I can't believe how well they came out. I received my order from Mouser Electronics , and will
    redo the xover, and clean the "L Pads"

    I need to make grills, assemble and give them a whirl..

    I'm hoping they will sound good, and were worth all that $$$ and effort
